    Staff were polite. Food was good. single bed was comfortable in family room. Room was Clean.

    Lack of hot water, had to run bath to get hot water in basin. managed to get 4 inches of hot water for a bath. Unmaned secluded reception, staff were behind bar, Room keys were left hanging up, easy access for potential burglars. Could feel springs in doulbe bed. Noisy water pipes through night. No Toilet paper left after maid service. No room to hang towels in bathroom, or places to put family wash bags. Tripped over carpet in bar on first night (wasn't drunk) torn carpet, informed staff of accident. next day at breakfast carpet was still sticking up. Second day at breakfast carpet still sticking up.

    It's proximity to Sunderland where i was working. Bar and Restaurant on site. Friendl staff.

    Rooms were a bbit shabby i.e. chipped work surfaces and loose fittings and old bath sealant in the bathroom.

    We stayed as a party of 9 and all enjoyed the experience. The hotel is clean and well looked after but the staff made the stay worth while. The attitude of everyone was first class and we would all recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Spacious bedroom and opportunity for either bar meals or Thai style restaurant. Retaurant staff really nice.

    Attention to detail when cleaning rooms seemed to have slipped, E.G. tea residues in bottom of cups.

    Friendly staff, more than adequate accommodation, reasonable price. Proximity to motorway and main roads as well as to Durham City - a fantastic place to visit.
